was freed. what the difference between the two cases? >> the new defense lawyer for her argued that some would say they took part -- that she had not taken part in the anti-putin prayer because she had been ejected from the cathedral beforehand, so she said her client was not guilty. it seems the appeals court listened to that and decided to commute to that to a suspended sentence. it decided to release her. but the prison terms in relation to the other two pussy riot activists remain and they will be sent to a prison colony. >> this protest that took place in the main cathedral in moscow, there had been some suggestion from the church that if the willing tobeen build repent, they would have had a less punitive sentence, but the women were uncompromising. >> all three remained speechless today, saying they would not resent. they did not see themselves guilty. the collective message they put out today was that there prayer had been a political action not motivated by religious hatred. therefore, they did not see themselves guilty of hooliganism motivated by religious hatred. >> thank you
to hear here. the significance of avoiding defense cuts, specifically referring to sequestration and could affect tens of thousands of people here in virginia specifically. the need to reinvest in the military and the significance of working closely with america's allies. a lot of these contrasts rhetorical more than actual contrasts and witness. he's been vague as some noticed about policy differences with the president but one place where he'll show a difference is on syria. more activist public position and suggesting that the rebels in that country's civil war to be armed and attack the president effectively prosecuting the terrorist attack as he'll describe it that led the death of four americans at the consulate there and libya and say among other things the attack on the consulate in benghazi was likely the work of the same forces that attacked our homeland on september 11th, one. he'll draw that link between that attack and al qaeda. thomas? >> nbc's peter alexander traveling with the romney campaign there in virginia, thank you so much. >> joining me today, a super sized edition.
we do that. i oppose duplicative programs in defense costing the government $3 billion. i've opposed subsidies for agribusiness in the midwest that cost -- a cost this government over $8 billion a year that we don't need. i oppose giving away tax breaks to the oil industry and gas industry to outsource. i have been able to stand up and oppose things we don't need the we need a combination of both additional revenue from those who have done very well by this economy and them some serious -- that is some serious spending cuts. the senator we're seeking to replace, we should elect someone in the senate is going to be willing to compromise. i am. linda mcmahon is not. she is one of these candidates who signed this pledge to grover norquist and a lobbying group in washington. in her debates, she said she agreed with mayor romney that if given a chance to cut spending by $10 and increase revenue by $1 that she would not take it. we don't need to send someone to washington who is going to feed this obstructionism and draw these ridiculously hard lines and the stand -- hard line in the sand.
>> pelley: tonight, the defense secretary warns of new attacks etd destructive as pearl harbor and 9/11. theyey could contaminate the water supply in major cities. >> pelley: david martin on the threat of cyber warfare. did the vice president get it the vibout the deadly attack in libya? >> we weren't told they wanted more security. >> pelley: reports from jan crawford and nancy cordes. fos angeles makes space for a rdes.craft as "endeavour" lands in its new home. bill whitaker is there. and steve hartman "on the road." whey were separated at birth. whitake're together till death do they part. >> reporter: so you think this th ats meant to be? >> absolutely. match made in heaven. captioning sponsored by cbs this is the "cbs evening news" with scott pelley. >> pelley: good evening. the united states is facing an attack threat equivalent to 9/11, an attack that would be carried out by computer. that was the stark warning from defense secretary leon panetta. he described a cyber pearl harbor in which attackers could take over computers that control the transportation system or a u
military in tunisia as a major issue. in libya there was no ministry of defense under gadhafi, and we don't even have a minister of defense in the newly-reformed, so curbing military power in the narrow sense of an army isn't the main issue in tunisia either, and i actually think -- excuse me, libya -- and i actually think that probably, you know, 95% of the 250,000 or so libyans walking around with weapons are trying to keep the peace, not make mischief. .. and the security forces and in defense of the regime that is where the action is, not in the military. you're the geopolitics guy. >> i thought the worst-case scenario for the algerian military is instability in northern mali. and you know what is going on in the eastern front with libya. i know that some troops had to be redeployed in the eastern front because of the, the traffic of armaments and drugs and other issues. this is the worst case so. >> i just want to take the opportunity to answer a question that hasn't been asked. but, this is something that i was thinking about. it's slightly related to your question but it's somethin
and the enthusiasm among republicans, and also the defensiveness among democrats since the debate. >> it is a little bit. one other thing i want to point out. romney seems to have searched national polls than battlegrounds. i think this something i want to keep tracking. i think it's -- it's a little piece of evidence right now and it's been something that you know the president is stronger in battle grounds than any other states. how much of romney's bump is in the other 41 states, if you will? and in the national polls and where in the battlegrounds maybe everything was fought to a draw? that's something that has to be a keconcern to the romney team. >> chris cillizza, when we looked at the narrowing in the battleground polls, especially virginia, we're seeing an impact there also in a very important senate race because there had been an advantage for tim kaine over george alan there, as the president at the top of the ticket was pulling ahead but now that it's narrowed they are dead even. >> yeah. i think virginia's the one to look at in terms of down ballot effect, because we expect that race be
, the chief of staff of the army that became the secretary of state and secretary of defense, who helped plan europe's rescuer from despair. his commitment to peace was born of his direct knowledge of the awful costs and consequences of war. general marshall once said, quote, the only way human beings can win a war is to prevent it. those words were true in his time, and they are true in our time. last month our nation was attacked again. a u.s. ambassador and three of our fellow americans are dead. murdered in benghazi, libya. among the dead were three veterans. all of them were fine men on a mission of peace and friendship to a nation that clearly longs for both. president obama has said that ambassador chris stevens and his colleagues represented the best of america, and he is right. we all mourn their loss. the attacks against us in libya were not an isolated incident. they were accompanied by anti-american riots and nearly two dozen other countries, most in the middle east and also in africa and asia. our embassies have been attacked and our flag burned and many of our citizens have been
question president obama's performance as commander and chief. white house on the defensive after vice president biden's comments on the assault that killed an american ambassador. >> we did not know they wanted more security. >> he was speaking directly for himself and for the president. >> now, governor romney says the american people have the right to answers. >> the vice president directly contradicted the sworn testimony of state department officials. >> trace: tonight, what the attack and its aftermath could mean in the race for the presidency. plus, the passenger arrested with a suitcase full of weapons at los angeles international airport back in court for a detention hearing. tonight, will a judge let him go or keep him locked up. >> and illegal bomb stash goes up in smoke. >> shepard: but first from fox this friday night the white house now says vice president joe biden was speaking only for himself and president obama. when the vp said we did not know diplomats in libya asked for more security there. the vice president made the comment last night at his debate with congressm
the administration over what he said was a lack of embassy security. >> imposing these devastating defense cuts for it what that does when we equivocate we sho'e cutting our own defense, it makes us more weak. when we look weak, our adversaries are much more willing to test us, more brazen in their attacks and allies are less -- >> with all due respect, that is a bunch of malarkey. >> why is that so? what's not a single thing is correct. be specific. security in his budget by $300@ million below what we asked for, number one. so much for that. number two, governor romney, before he knew the facts, before he even knew our ambassador was killed, he was out making a political statement which was panned by the media around the world. >> we will have more on the debate later in this show, and expanded by including some third party vice-presidential candidates. the 2012 nobel peace prize has been awarded to the european union at a time when 27-nation body is embroiled in a debt crisis that has sparked mass protests in spain and greece. the nobel committee cited the etan's historical leadership, inclu
russian-made defense equipment. russia and syria denied there was any illegal cargo on board. in southern turkey, we get the latest. >> turkey allowed the jets to take off in the middle of the night and finished the journey. we had to wait all day to figure out just what it had discovered and confiscated on that plane. the prime minister says that they found in equipment and munitions made in russia and destined for damascus and syria's defense ministry. earlier in the day, they said that was not the case. the equipment on board was legal civilian communications equipment and should be returned immediately. what happened really proves one important point. turkey is now heavily involved in the conflict with syria. at home this country houses syrian refugees, rebels, and has intercepted a syrian jet and divide its own artillery across the border in this area. it has also got a diplomatic and political fight with russia. for the last year, they have been on opposite sides of the syrian conflict and they found that way of working to gather. -- together. >> the latest from southern turkey, a l
together again says defense attorney joe brodsky but some of the band members he acknowledges need to learn how to get along another defense team has sentenced to intervene. carroll maintained that peterson gave him the ok to move forward but brodsky said that was not the case. but he said that he never gave carroll the green light. miss gonzalez needs to seek some serious mental health because she obviously needs a because she makes stuff up. his testimony jurors say it was a deciding factor in fighting peterson guilty.finding peterson guilty. their bottom feeders are obsessed. greenberg was of the defense team but now he is back on it's not about anybody's ego or anybody calling each other names it's about helping drew go through this very very difficult price process right now peterson is scheduled to be sentenced on the 12th. tonight he says mission accomplished passer rory brooks finished his project across the country. our goal is to eradicate violence one neighborhood at a time he walked for a lot of neighborhoods 3,000 mi. from new york to l.a. trying to raise $15 million for the s
to the european union? huh? that is the nutiest thing i have ever heard. and defense secretary leon panetta warns of a cyber pearl harbor coming from iran and it may have already begun. all on >>> jimmy, after last night's debate i keep picking those hot romney stocks and sectors. good evening, everyone, i'm larry kudlow. this is "the kudlow report." our top story tonight, paul ryan's resounding victory in last night's debate with vice president joe biden. the first ten minutes sealed it. 43 million people watched and the polls are showing a snap cnn poll gave the win to ryan and so did the cnbc survey. biden's snarky, disrespectful laughing and out-of-control interruptions hurt him enormously. plus, he gave no reason for barack obama to be reelected ryan played and cool and smart. the best line today from marco rubio. take a listen to this. >> let me tell you, it's not easy to do a good job onstage when you have a heckler on the stage with you. >> biden misled everyone with a string of falsehoods. tonight we have the man who developed the cia's program that detects deception. what
the last few years. >> reporter: and he had support. travis sharp who studies defense spending at center for new american security says the proposed cuts of tanks were a no-brainer. >> we a relatively conservative institution like the u.s. military which does not like to take risks because risks get people killed says it has enough tanks, i think generally civilians should be inclined to believe them. >> reporter: but while the defense bill isn't finished yet, you the taxpayer are still likely to be on the hook. for fixing up tanks the army doesn't want. so who decided the general was wrong? that he actually does need more tanks? i'll give you one word. congress. >> i think that there are better things that they could be doing with that $3 billion. but the fact that the military is having such a hard time getting this relatively small amount of money to be saved, i think is an indication the huge uphill fight that the military faces when it comes to congress. congress is going to fight tooth and nail to protect, defense investments that benefit their constituents and the people that live
of defense and the national security council. prior to becoming chairman, he served briefly as the army's 37th chief of staff. general dempsey is a bit of an unexpected appointment. he had just been sworn in as the army chief of staff a couple of months prior, but when the nomination process for another candidate stalled, general dempsey was called to serve a grateful nation, and he has done so with distinction. since taking the chairman's job a year ago, the 37-year army veteran has made headlines by dealing with the infamous quran-burning pastor by calling him up and asking him to withdraw his support for the anti-muslim video that sparked protests across the middle east. he expressed disappointment over the navy seal who published an unauthorized account of the killing of osama bin laden. he said an israeli attack on iran would clearly delay but probably not destroy iran's nuclear program. he has stressed the need to retool the military for a postwar world with smaller pentagon budgets, and most recently he has spoken about the need to turn up the volume on ways to help war veterans reint
, very much so. a lot more so than the president. but he these play both offense and defense. last week the president played neither. by defense he's got to be able to say "this is what we've accomplished." and point out especially in states like ohio and michigan the difference the auto industry has made student loans being -- the interest being removed. the pre-existing condition. all of those things, he's got to do it. and at the same time he's got to go on offense as far as the other side is concerned. to make -- question about mitt romney and the romney/ryan and the fractures and fissures within their own program. >> woodruff: the other thing tonight, it is 890 minutes, david, but tonight we are told the questions are going to alternate between domestic and foreign policy. how will that change what we should look for? >> well, we can all expect that joe biden will do better on the foreign policy. it's never been paul ryan's main interest and it's always been joe biden's main interest so you would think he would have natural advantage there. one quick disagreement i had with mark is
of defense in a coordinated effort, in reconnaissance. but i don't believe that we are going to turn the department of defense into a police organization. we are using our military assets in a prudent way to deal with interdiction, and we've made some success in this area. seventy tons of cocaine have been stopped. but, you know, when you look at the drug problem and it is a tremendous problem, and there are no easy solutions to it it's a complicated problem, and it's heading up the effort to try to create a drug-free america, which is a challenge and a goal of all of us. not only will we utilize national defense and the department of defense, but we've got to get on the demand side of the ledger; we've got to get to education. and education ought to begin at home, and it ought to be reinforced in our schools. and there's another thing that will be more important than the premise of this question on a hypothetical of using troops. we will use the military assets, we will use military assets but we need to focus on another part of this problem, and that problem is law enforcement. and
to eliminate those that aren't working. i know a lot of them that aren't working. one of them is in defense spending, because i've taken on some of the defense contractors. i saved the taxpayers $6.8 billion in a deal for an air force tanker that was done in a corrupt fashion. i believe that we have to eliminate the earmarks. and sometimes those projects, not the overhead projector that senator obama asked for, but some of them that are really good projects, will have to be eliminated as well. and they'll have to undergo the same scrutiny that all projects should in competition with others. so we're going to have to tell the american people that spending is going to have to be cut in america. and i recommend a spending freeze that, except for defense, veterans affairs, and some other vital programs, we'll just have to have across-the-board freeze. and some of those programs may not grow as much as we would like for them to, but we can establish priorities with full transparency, with full knowledge of the american people, and full consultation, not done behind closed doors and shoving earma
intercepted, the cargo would have reached syria's defense ministry. moscow has accused turkey of endangering the lives of the russian citizens who were passengers on the plane. syria has also condemned turkey's actions. >> what happened could be described as piracy. turkish air piracy against a civilian syrian plane on a regular flight from moscow to damascus. >> these suspicious cargo was confiscated. after several hours, the plane was allowed to finish its journey to damascus. ankara has now told turkish airlines not to fly planes through syrian airspace, saying it is too dangerous. >> for more on this, we go live to thomas on the line for us from istanbul. put this incident into perspective for us. what does it mean for to keep's role in the syrian conflict now -- turkey's role in the syrian conflict? >> turkey is getting ever deeper into the syrian conflict. we have the first incident on turkish soil where turkey took action against another state. there was a similar case last year when they stopped an iranian plane on its way to syria. this time, russia is involved. the turkish official
on the head. paul ryan had a solid performance but he was always on defense. >> in terms of who dominated the debate, joe biden dominated. >> the key to winning one of these debates is to lower speculation expectations about your speaking skills and joe biden's been doing that for four years. >>> retired space shuttle "endeavour" is on its final journey this morning. >> to its final home at the california science center. >>> nobel peace prize of 2012 is to be awarded to the european union. >> got out of hand during a debate of veteran congressmen forced to run against each other. >>> can you imagine finding this? a giant eyeball. the discovery has marine biologists and all of us completely stunned. >>> detroit tigers are headed to the american league championship series and a swing and a miss. san francisco giants will advance to the nlcs. >> all that -- >> what happened? did you lose something? >> my buddy, joe biden for just making stuff up. >> used poor judgment when it published pictures of the vice presidential nominee pumping iron just hours before last nig
there will be a debate on defense spending. what will happen there? >> i am afraid there is not a big difference between the two parties. one of the things we will let hear about is the need to dramatically cut the military budget. there is a need and an ability to cut several hundred million dollars -- sorry, several hundred billion dollars from the military budget without in any way jeopardize and the safety and security of the people of this country. we will also not hear about the global impact of global warming, the environment. we will not hear about climate. we will not hear about global inequality. there is a whole range of issues that will simply not make it on to that debate agenda and the military budget is probably right at the top of the list. tavis: we shall see. two more debates to go. we thank you for your time. >> always a pleasure. tavis: that is our show tonight. you can download our app. thank you for watching. as always, keep the faith. >> for more information on today's show, visit tavis smiley on pbs.org. tavis: join me next time with ethan hawke on his new movie. >> there is a sa

when our words are not backed by deeds, when our defense spending is being arbitrarily and deeply cut, when we have no trade agenda to speak of and the perception of our strategy is not one of partnership, but of passivity. it is time to change course in the middle east. one final thing, carol, on a campaign conference call yesterday romney's foreign policy team talked about some presidents of past they might be shaping their foreign policy principles after. they talked about the presidencies of jfk, truman and even bill clinton. after that first debate when a lot of pundits on the right and the left were sensing that mitt romney might be moving to the middle on domestic policy issues, there might be some of that on foreign policy when we hear this speech later on this morning. >> jim acosta, we'll check back with you. >>> okay. let's take another peek at the obama campaign's preemptive strike. remember, it's called a prebuttal because it's challenging a speech romney will not give for a couple more hours. listen. >> when our u.s. diplomats were attacked in libya, "the new york times"

satellites or defense purposes, but you need the government to go beyond there. i don't think private enterprise, people talk about going to mars on private space ships, but it costs so mu money. to go to mars would cost several hundred billion dollarsuric i don't see a business plan tham ma that makes it worthwhile. i suspect it's the government and i suspect may happen will be what happened in the 1960s. what will drive it will not be science, not cold war, but prestige. if china sends astronauts to the moon, i'm certain we'll quickly make sure we have astronauts there as well. >> you do see there have been good things that come from space exploration as we know it? >> oh, yeah, absolutely. i think the really good things have come from unmanned space exploration. you look great sitting in an anchor's desk, but you're not really meant for space. you're a 100-pound bag of water and it's much better to send a robot. i'm so excited when i see the curiosity rover on mars. i look for the photographs, and frankly, i'm more excited by that than if a human was there because if a human was th
question. brac, the base realignment and closure process, could call for cuts for many defense related programs in massachusetts. if that happens, where would you stand for cuts to trim the deficit, or to prefer pentagon spending and jobs provided for the economy in massachusetts? >> great question. i am still serving in the national guard. i have been there in that capacity. and as a senator, making sure we can provide a good analysis as to what is going on. provide them with the toolsthe jobs are. we have a strong defense industry in massachusetts. we need to make sure we can protect them, as well. it will be a challenge. i worked on the first base closure when i was a state senator. i have been fighting and working now, meeting with the personnel. industry in massachusetts. also, at the air force base. to make sure we provide them. as a ranking member of armed services and having the ability to meet with these people and get the information and battle in a consistent basis for them, i am looking forward to that opportunity. as you know, especially, they have a mission where their pr
delivered a spirit defense of conservative strategies proposed by the romney campaign. how several newspapers and w websites are describing the debate this morning. it was rapid fire. it was lively. mply put, it was hard to turn away from. i agree with that. maryland governor martin o'malley joins me now. good morning, mr. o'malley. how are you doing? >> i'm doing well, don. thank you. the vice president went out there and did what he needed to do and a lot of people are energized to see him on such an aggressive and needed calling out of the falsehoods and shell games that these other guys are proposing. >> i know you have some pull. can you talk to some folks and say one more, at least, vice presidential debate, please? that was the most interesting television i think i have seen in a very, very long time. regardless of what you think about, you know, what was actually said. it was great to watch. >> you know, i enjoyed it. i think the moderator also did a very good job. she allowed them to get into it. she allowed them to draw the contrast between the failed policies that paul r
and defense. people are very concerned and the ability of our government to deal with the very significant problems facing us. that sets a high bar. people imagined him as a leader, and here is that where that debate stuff then. occluding himself so where, giving us something to president obama, that change the way it is very dramatic. megyn: would he think is happening on the numbers here? is it one of the other? what is the total picture? >> it's a good way to think about it in thirds. in the middle there is the governing third come on people are going to vote republican and the other people are going to vote democratic or the truth is that they are looking for the total package. since they feel the urgency, foreign and domestic, the debt in libya and afghanistan and all those of those things, rising prices is no small factor. these people are looking for total package leadership, and that is mitt romney had not crossed the threshold before. and now he has. megyn: i want to get to last nights debate. we talked about it in advance and now we have seen it. there are vastly disparate headli
force academy so from time to time the media will focus on it. the de the department of defense will wring the hands and say, oh, yes, we have a problem, but then when the media stops paying attention, nothing has been done. no structural reforks, and it is the structure and the way in which they have people report that is the problem. they allow the chain of command, and now that sounds like a hierarchy and sounds like that is a lot of people, but what you are actually talking about is empowering one human being, one individual to unilaterally shut down the investigation and prosecution of rape. because of that structure, there is a series underprosecution. you know, only a fraction and less than 10% ever get prosecuted an convicted, and of that, far less are actually convicted of rape and they reduce the charges to things like adultery. >> and susan, we did reach out to the department of defense and we were told that secretary panetta has repeatedly stated that there is no place for sexual assault at the military tor department of defense, and sexual assault is an affront to b
